Kanso | The World's First Self-Cleaning Towel

$125,938

1,553

We were tired of owning a million towels and doing endless loads of laundry. Between the two of us we owned around 30 towels! Of those, only 5 were useable, the other 25 were just too musty to dry off with.

The solution to our problems was the self-cleaning Kanso Towel, featuring a waffle weave design and Polygiene Stay Fresh technology.  

Polygiene’s permanent textile treatment is bluesign® approved which means it meets rigorous independent environmental and product life cycle standards. It is also Oeko-tex tested and certified. 

Lifetime Stay-Fresh Guarantee: If your Kanso Towel (through normal use) begins to smell musty, you can send it back for a new towel or a full refund. 

The Kanso towel is self-cleaning, fast drying and anti-microbial, meaning you can dry off with a fresh, odor-free towel every time; no added laundry required.
